    SmartFlex® I Maintenance Powder is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 197.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps my creaky old Morgan going My very senior Morgan is on a light work load now after a long show career followed by years as a moderately used walk/trot lesson horse. He's creaky but solid, rather like an old type-writer that has a sticky (stifle) key. After changing over from another joint product I've been able to maintain him at a lower dose with a higher degree of comfort. He does tend to sift his supplements out of his grain, so I've been feeding this as a mash and he licks the bowl clean every time. I've also used it on a few of my off the track re-schools before their heavy work began and have been happy with seeing an increase in joint flexion comfort usually within two weeks.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so great! One of my OTTBs has a knee injury. I switched him for this product to the higher dosage one, II, and he is doing better. The I is just not strong enough for him since the FL humidity really seems to bother that knee!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rescue horse success i rescued a mare last year & not knowing how her life had been (other than starving) I decided to start her on a maintenance dose just to play it safe. So far must be working since she has no stiffness or joint issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what he needed I recently took possession of an older schoolmaster and although he his temperament never showed it, you could see the 'tell-tale' signs of a life if lessons. Stiffness, soreness but never unwilling. A friend who had a lesson program of 5 horses in their 20s recommended Smartpak Maintenance. Her guys ( and one mare ) look and act young and vibrant. I'm on my second order and I've begun to see a difference in Simon. A trot to meet me; a lope after a good dirt roll. He's feeling better and that's all that matters!... I hope Smartpak Maintenance can keep him feeling this good for many years to come.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made my mule much more comfortable! Ruby (my mule) has been on SmartFlex I for about a month, and she is feeling a difference! She's only 8 years old, but I believe perhaps some circumstances in her early life (before I got her) caused some minor joint issues. I had a "gut feeling" that she wasn't as comfortable as she could be, and a couple of joints were popping a little, so I called SmartPak (of course!). We got her started on this product, and the difference is wonderful! She's gaited, and she now performs her gaits so beautifully, as if to say "Hey, thanks! I feel great now!" We are very happy with SmartFlex!
    Date published: 2014-07-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for younger horses! I have had my 4 year old on this and while I haven't noticed a huge difference in his performance because he's not competing hard, I know that I am working to prevent any injuries or damage to joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles. Worth it to me!
